Your home patio gets good use throughout the spring, summer and into the fall. With such heavy foot traffic throughout a majority of the year, it’s crucial to make sure that you keep up with regular maintenance and necessary repairs to maximize its lifespan. Today, many patio areas are made with concrete surfaces and slabs. Much like other parts of your home, a patio will eventually need to be repaired as time goes on because of settlement, wear and tear and erosion. If you think it’s time for a patio repair, don’t worry. At Dr. Schultz Home & Tree Service, we can help provide you with the repairs you need to keep enjoying your patio for the seasons and years ahead.
So how can you tell your patio needs some repairing? One big issue that comes with outdoor patios is sinking and settling. When concrete settles, it usually happens in uneven sections so you may notice that certain parts of the space are unstable and wobbly. Another way to tell that there is a problem is that there will be cracks forming because the concrete slab’s weight is no longer evenly supported. If you notice these things, then patio repair is needed to get your space looking nice again and to prevent people tripping, stubbing their toes and leaning furniture.
Sometimes, settlement of the concrete is inevitable because of weather conditions. However, there are some maintenance methods you can have done to help keep your patio in good condition. For instance, you may want to have the surface sealed to protect the concrete. Resealing the surface every so often can make it more durable. If you are experiencing any of the issues mentioned above, patio repair or patio replacement may be necessary. At Dr. Schultz Home & Tree Service we can discuss a variety of repair methods with you so you can determine which would be best.
